Lakewood Camping Resort



Lakewood is a massive playground for families. We are almost three hundred acres of family fun, with a half-mile of beach, a full-sized water park, two pools, a mini-golf course, nearly a dozen sports venues, bikes, multiple watercrafts, and the best atmosphere for celebrating Camping Culture you’ve ever experienced! Lakewood stretches along a full half-mile of the beach. That’s more sand between your toes than any other resort on the Grand Strand! Lakewood was the first to install its very own Water Park! Here, we have our Olympic sized mountain themed pool, our giant water park slides and lazy river, our kiddie pool, our kid’s water park, live bands, snow cones (or as we call them: Tiki Balls), and plenty of deck space for you to catch some rays. We also have an indoor pool with a huge jacuzzi and even a suntanning deck! Myrtle Beach is the Mini Golf capital of the world. That’s why we’ve put in an exciting 18-hole putt-putt course. We call it River Town Golf! And right off of River Town’s docks you can launch into one of our many lakes on a pedal boat, a canoe, or a kayak! Or, right out front, grab yourself a bike and explore our almost three hundred acres! We also have oceanside basketball courts, shuffleboard courts, bocci ball courts, and volleyball courts; as well as a beachfront playground, and manicured -hole and horseshoe courts. And you’ll never go hungry or thirsty with our oceanside food truck options like our Fresh Fish Fry, and the famous Red Trailer; as well as our Sand Castle Creamery (ice cream parlor), Sub Shop, House, and Trading Post restaurant. Now, these are only some of the amazing things there are to do around Lakewood. We hope you’ll explore, meet people, stumble into incredible experiences, and let yourself be nature's guest, at the resort that’s been changing the way you camp, since 1959.
